Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that the new Star Wars film is out. The Force Awakens has fans new and old excitedly anticipating a reunion with their favorite characters after more than 30 years—and companies are using the opportunity to rebrand popular products to appeal to fans.
A perfect example comes from CoverGirl, who recently released a Star Wars inspired makeup collection that includes limited edition colors and products geared toward the light or dark side. The well-known cosmetics brand went all out in their marketing efforts, including working with famous makeup artists to design six signature looks using the new products.
While the official designs are sure to please, we were reminded of just how many talented beauty gurus out there have come up with their own Star Wars inspired looks. We’ve rounded up some our favorite Star Wars makeup tutorials below!
